The J. Alexander's in the Norwood area of Cincinnati served up some excellent meals and terrific service. If you enjoy the predictability and familiarity of a chain restaurant and are also looking for something a bit more upscale, this is a great option. Everyone in my party ordered something different, and none of us was disappointed. The food was delicious... More

This was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had! The service, the food, the wine - EVERYTHING was exceptional. Even the key lime pie was second to none! Can't wait to come back next time we're in Cincy!!!

Jays or Redstone Grill is always a great place for lunch or dinner. The service stuff is top notch. The food is always excellent. Wide range of items, great salmon. Happy hour gets crowded. I think Monday is half off wine but I maybe wrong.

A quick stop before a show in downtown. Things were slow on a Monday night and we grabbed a seat at the bar. The server was awesome and friendly, and the food was good (had the Thai Kai Salad). Great atmosphere.

We visited J Alexanders and I was impressed with the food, the wait staff and the hostesses, who kindly accommodated our group of 14 last minute on a Saturday night. The place was packed by 5:30 and still they set us up within 30 minutes albeit at 2 tables next to each other. Everyone had great food - the salmon... More

I hadn't been here in a few years and was lucky enough to have lunch here today. Great service and delicious food! The salads are great (I enjoyed the Thai salad) and everything I saw coming out of the kitchen looked so good. The croissants that they served with the salads are sinful!

We needed a restaurant on Christmas Eve (not our usual year of doing the family dinner this time) and as we were staying across the street, we made a reservation at J. Alexander's. The service was excellent, the food excellent and an overall pleasant dining experience. Highly recommend.

We go to J. Alexanders eight to ten times a years. The food and service are always dependably great. It's kind of like fine dining but kid friendly as well. We've never had a bad item there before. We really enjoy the Caesar Salad, Mr. Jack's Crispy Chicken, French Dip, Slow Roasted Prime Rib, and the Bayou Pasta. The service... More

Trust me when I say that they served THE BEST carrot cake we've EVER had. Ever in my entire life and I'm 60. It is served warm. The cake is so, so moist and delicious. The frosting looked like it had been poured over the piece. We savored each individual bite. It set the gold standard for carrot cake. I... More

Needed somewhere to eat for a group of five with no reservations and decided to give J. Alexander's a try in Hyde Park. We couldn't have made a better choice for the evening. It was 6:45 PM, but we were seated immediately at a large round booth. The wait staff was prompt to our table and provided excellent service throughout... More
